Senior Congress leader Sachin Pilot on Wednesday alleged that the BJP had promised to ensure “ease of doing business” in Gujarat but in reality had created “ease of doing corruption” during its 20-year-long regime in the state. He slammed the Gujarat government for not sticking to the manifesto as had been claimed.

The BJP is patting its back in the world of economics, that it has improved ease of doing business. But the reality is that, BJP rule has improved ease of doing corruption. It has promoted contracts, business interests of a select few while it ruled a village, block, taluka and district levels over the past two decades.

The former Union Minister while addressing a press meet at Rajkot criticised the Gujarat model, calling it an ‘exaggeration.’

“Gujarat is lagging behind on every parameter, be it unemployment, issues of farmers, economic slowdown or even the worries of the middle class. But, the Gujarat model is often portrayed as the best model. Despite that, BJP accuses Congress of playing caste-based politics,” he says.

Pilot further questioned the resignation of Anandiben Patel from the Chief Minister’s post and emphasised that CM Vijay Rupani was playing the role of a scapegoat for the BJP top brass, PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah.

Why was Anandiben Patel removed as Gujarat CM? They have made Rupani the CM to ensure that if BJP loses polls PM Modi and Amit Shah are not blamed. This is why they have provisioned for a scapegoat, that is Vijay Rupani who will be blamed, should BJP lose the Gujarat polls. 

Sachin Pilot is currently the President of Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee.
